I go to Olio in Hamra (near Makdisi Street) from time to time when I want a better than average pizza. The burrata salad and pizza rustica are standouts, if you're not sticking to a vegetarian or halal diet. The menu has recently changed and sadly they no longer list my favorite pesto salad. Prices seem high for the quality... More

If you need to eat a delicious Italian pizza or a cheesy pasta with great taste at a calm area in a crowded space, you should visit Olio Hamra and try it. The Pepperoni pizza and the four cheese pasta dishes which you should try there.

The kitchen is dirty: Had been there with a couple of friends and found many hairs in my pizza. When the bill arrived, they still charged me for the slice I ate. The hygiene in there is deplorable. Do not go to Olio

I was expecting more of Olio especially that m a regular at other outlets. Service was below average as we had to beg for the waiter ti wait our table. Food was acceptable except that we had ordered the salmon plate which was overcooked. Pizza is good as usual. What is really worth giving a try is the pain perdu...really... More

Craving an authentic Italian restaurant in Beirut we were lucky to dine at Olio. A true Italian flavor pasta and crispy pizza made in wooden oven. Highly recommend for those who seek good service and exquisite cuisine.
